It’s March 14th and that means it’s Pi Day. Here’s one of my favourite pie recipes to celebrate:
Note: I have posted a peaches and cream pie recipe here on my blog previously but I like this one even better!
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 (3 ounce) package non-instant vanilla pudding mix
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained and syrup reserved
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions: Grease the sides and bottom of a 10 inch deep dish pie plate. Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and pudding mix. Add in the butter, egg, and milk and beat for 2-3 minutes. Pour this mixture into the pie plate. Arrange the peaches on top of this mixture. In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy and mix in 1/2 cup of sugar and 3 T. of the reserved peach syrup. Beat for 2-3 minutes and spoon this over top of the peaches in the pie plate, leaving a one inch border from the edge of the pan. Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the pie. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Chill and serve.
